Overall Combination Score 87/100 80/100 7 (8%)
Our Verdict: At 1440p, GTX 1060 6GB can hit 50-60 frames per second on pretty much everything at ultra, just without antialiasing, less ambient occlusion and turned down shadows. Whereas RTX 2060 can hit 50-60 frames per second at maximum settings. The RTX 2060 is faster by 58% for 1440p gaming. For 1080p games, upgrading from GTX 1060 6GB to RTX 2060 is not worth it if targeting 60 frames per second.
